PreStros Morning Report: May 31

Oklahoma City

Postponed, because Oklahoma is getting crapped on by Nature. (Seriously. Thoughts and prayers to Oklahoma.)

Corpus (33-21), 1.0 up

It was 3-3 heading into the bottom of the 8th at Arkansas, but the Travelers got two in the inning to defeat Corpus 5-3. Bobby Doran dealt, throwing 5IP, 2H/1ER, 4K:2BB; Andrew Robinson allowed 2H/2ER, 0K:1BB in 1.1IP and Pat Urckfitz got the BS/L with 1.2IP, 3H/2ER, 2K:2BB (and one of Robinson's earned runs).

Drew Muren was 3x4 with a double; George Springer was 2x4 with two doubles, a walk, and only one strikeout. Max Stassi, Domingo Santana, and Jonathan Meyer each had a hit, a walk, and an RBI. The Hooks left 12 LOBsters and were 1x13 with runners in scoring position.

Man of the Match: Bobby Doran.


Crazy one in Lancaster. The JetHawks led 3-0, 4-1, and 5-3 before Visalia (the Rawhide, for those of you who listen to the Morning Drive and listen to Idiot guess at minor-league franchise names) got EIGHT RUNS in the top of the 4th. The JetHawks answered with five in the bottom half, but it wasn't enough. Visalia wins, 12-10.

Blair Walters allowed 5H/4R (2ER) in 3.1IP; Jonas Dufek gave up 5H/6ER, 0K:1BB in 0.1IP; T.J. Geith allowed 3H/1ER, 2K:0BB in 1.1IP; Aaron West allowed 3H/1ER, 6K:1BB in 4IP.

Andrew Aplin (2B, RBI) and Matt Duffy (2B, HR, RBI) had three hits each; Joe Sclafani (3R, 2B, 2BB), Matt Duffy (2B, HR, RBI), Tyler Heineman (RBI), and Chris Epps (2B, RBI) had two hits each; Brandon Meredith was 1x3 with two walks, a homer, and 4RBI total. Telvin Nash was 0x2 with two walks (and three strikeouts).

Man of the Match: Uh. Joe Sclafani

Quad Cities (30-23), 4.0 GB

The River Bandits moved within half a game of 2nd place Beloit with a 6-3 14-inning win over the Snappers. Jordan Jankowski threw 2IP, 2H/1ER, 4K:2BB; Cameron Lamb allowed 2H/0ER, 2K:1BB in 3IP; Gera Sanchez was The Pimp with 1H/0ER, 6K:0BB in 4IP; Mitchell Lambson allowed 2H/2ER, 3K:1BB in 1.1IP (but got the win), with John Neely recording the final two outs - the last of which represented the tying run.

Carlos Correa was 3x6 with a double and an RBI (now hitting .350/.422/.525 in his last ten games); Jon Homerton's one hit was, indeed, a 14th-inning homer, but he was 1x6 with 3K. Brian Blasik also struck out three times - in fact, the River Bandits won despite striking out an Astros-worthy 17 times.

Man of the Match: Gera Sanchez
